  • My Camera Came without PC Camera functions


    I have a camera whose model is xtrax selfie "https://www.xtrax.com.br/camera-de-acao-xtrax-selfie" I really need the camera's pc function, but this function has been disabled, I researched and found goprawn, but as my language is Portuguese and both English and translators are mediocre, I can't even update the firmware or activate the function, will you can you help me?

      is it possible to change this? because the only thing I really need is the pc cam function in the vivitar firmware

        Yes, I believe that the fake 'imx179s_8.ko' sensor driver can be replaced, but I think more changes will be needed to make it work.

        USB webcams / pc cams on ebay, aliexpress and other sites may be around $20 to $30 USD, and they should produce better video than a cheap Allwinner action camera. let me know if you want help to find it.

      Could you do that for me ? I imagine I don't have the necessary knowledge for that

      just changing the xtrax imx179s_8.ko to vivitar did not work even it hangs on the initial image after a few seconds restarts

      I also tried copying the whole sdv file but it didn't work, the same error occurred, maybe editing something inside it works but I don't know what to edit
